Liverpool and Manchester United facing ominous competition for Bundesliga goal-machine

Any hopes Liverpool, Manchester United or Arsenal had of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been dealt a blow with news that Paris Saint-Germain are keen on the frontman.

According to reports in Italy, PSG have turned their attentions to Aubameyang as the man to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the French giants’ leading man.

TMW [as per Le 10 Sport] note that the Gabon forward is being targeted as the ideal man to replace the Swedish superstar when the latter’s contract comes to an end next summer.

According to the Italian source, the club are progressing ‘very seriously’ in their bid to sign Aubameyang, who previously featured for Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne before moving to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

However, the reigning French giants may face competition from a trio of Premier League giants, all of whom have been linked with Aubameyang, who has scored a remarkable 17 goals in 15 Bundesliga outings so far this term.

According to the Express, both Arsenal and Liverpool are keen on the attacker, with the latter perhaps holding the edge due to the presence of former BVB coach Jurgen Klopp.

However, Manchester United are also understood to be keen on the Central African, with the Daily Star [via the Independent] noting that Louis van Gaal is monitoring the striker, who surely has the qualities to solve the Red Devils’ striking woes.
